Rothes – Spey Walk

This flat, circular walk follows the River Spey on it’s way from Craigellachie to Boat o’ Brig. The path is good but is not suitable for wheelchairs or buggies. The scenery along this walk is very beautiful at any time of year, although it can be a little exposed in places and the paths can be muddy in wet weather.

  • Unsuitable for wheelchairs and buggies
  • Terrain: Varied surfaces

    Mainly grass and earth path, with some sections of farm track and tarmac. Paths can be muddy when wet.

  • Generally level
